This is monarchy, one of the form in Ancient Greece’s government
This is the oligarchy, a group of wealthy men ruling Ancient Greece.
This is Tyranny, a cruel form of government.
And this is Democracy, all citizens will have the right to vote on one person to rule.
It is important to learn about different forms of government because then we will know not just about the culture and where Ancient Greece settle at, but we will also know about the laws and how Greece rules their country. We learned 4 different forms of government in Greece. Monarchy, Oligarchy, Tyranny, and Democracy. I think Democracy is the best form of government because citizens get to vote on things and they will all decide in one thing.
Apple is one of the most popular tech. company on the world right now. It have different designs that are unique and popular. Apple’s slogan “Think Different.” Really impact the way of creators and people think about what they’re doing. Why not think different to come up with such an awesome and creative idea?

Apple made such awesome products, and all of them are unique. So think different, and you’ll be amazed on what you achieved.
One of the activities we did in social studies is mummifying fruits. We wrapped apples and tomatoes in tissue paper, and in the inside we put salt and baking soda. The salt and baking soda helped the food stay for a long time.
My TOP 3 favorite activities that we did in class was the kahoot game, the 7-12 chapters test, and the review game. The kahoot and the review game was really fun, and it also helped us for our test.
-This project teach me about the things that affects the human settlement (Water, topography, and vegetation). I also learned about what villagers does for living, some of them are farmers and some of them are herders. I learned more about the Middle-East and how everything is arranged back then and now.
-I am proud of my screencast because I think I did a great job organizing everything. And I am also proud of my Minecraft world, because I have never used Minecraft before and I think this is an awesome opportunity to get use to Minecraft so I can use it through-out the year with other projects.
-Next time I would start my world earlier and try to not be in a rush, and I would maybe plan a script for my screencast so I don’t have to stumble in some parts in the video.
I think I success on learning new topics, and asking for help when I needed. I am not really happy on how much topics I finished on Aleks, because I didn’t do Aleks daily and I take a long time to work on knowledge checks. Next quarter I would set how many topics should I do in 1 day or 1 week.
On my final reflection I made a few language mistakes. I forgot to include how the character changes through out the story. Next time I would avoid saying “yeah” and “like”. I think that was the biggest issue in my final book reflection. I would read the rubric clearly before I do the reflection, and I think I would also write a script to make it easier next time.
Making a poster to advertise something is really hard work. In the first three tutorials I learned how to make the words stand out in the pictures, and adjusting them, The thing that is very interesting to me is the tutorial “less is more”. In that tutorial we learned that the more simple the design is, the more easy it is to understand. I like that tutorial because usually I would plop everything in and I think it looks cool, but then now I learned that the more simple the design is, the more you can “deliver” it to the reader.
Our group’s topic for the ecosystems unit is water pollution. We chose to do Common Craft for our presentation. Common Craft is when you slide props through the white board and someone narrates. The most interesting fact that I learned was that more than one billion people have to walk up to three hours to get water in some countries. In this project, we needed to use the iPad stand to film, and I discovered how to use it with my group. The best part of this project was filming because we needed to cooperate with each other. If we do this project again, I will try to make the video longer and also prepare more props. It was a really fun project, because we learned some filming skills, and how to cooperate with our table group.
